The Middle East Studies curriculum continues to evolve as faculty and students gain more experience. After discussion with the College's Academic Program and Standards Committee, the program now includes a new element to the capstone experience: Senior research now includes a workshop consisting of three 75-minute
meetings in the first weeks of the semester to help MES seniors reflect
on different disciplinary approaches to a contemporary issue.
The pilot workshop will be led by Prof. Ed Webb with the theme of water resources in the Middle East & North Africa.
